I hope you had a good week. I did, I went to the Craft & Quilt Fair in Melbourne that was on this weekend. Lots of lovely creations to look at and very easy to spend money.
I have also this past few days started to work on a tumbling block quilt. It is going to be a birthday present later on this year. At first I started with English paper piecing, but decided that was to time consuming for me, so I have been piecing the blocks with the sewing machine. I has worked very well because I have been marking the seam line on every piece.
It is important to have one dark, one medium and one light colour when doing tumbling blocks to get the 3D effect. I marked every seam line. Where the lines intersect is where the seams start and stop.
I will write more about how it turns out later on. So far I have made 35 blocks but I am going to need 166 for a lap size quilt. The birthday is not until november so I am sure I will have enough time.
Until next time, Happy Sewing and take care.
